for romney. these polls -- one other thing. we know that they've middled with the polls for political purposes. when todd akin had 24 hours to decide whether to poll out, there was a phony poll produced by a major polling outfit, wasn't quinnipiac, showin on clr examination, they overexamined republicans by nine points. they're taking the same poll on romney/obama in missouri, they're oversampling democrats by nine points. that's using polls to score political points. >> sean: stay right there. we'll come back and have much more with arnol ann coulter. also coming up, arnold schwarzenegger talking about the affair that ruined his marriage. that's straight ahead. >> my wife was a fantastic friend, great advisor, great mother. my kids were fantastic. the thing that i cherished the most i destroyed by stupid things that i've done. >> we continue with ann coulter and david limbaugh. pat caddell, mainstream media is threatening our country's future. how did we get to be 36 days out of an election and a president who said shovel ready, shovels hitting the ground, and a net loss of jobs in t

with governor romney. brand new fox polling shows this. a largely percentage of the likely voters believe the country's policies need to change. governor mike huckabee, former governor of arkansas and host of "huckabee". what does that tell you? >> it shows how dissatisfied people are. when you get to 75%, who is the 25% who thinks we're doing things right? where do they get their information? but it's bad news because it shows that this is not a partisan divide. you have independents, democrats and republicans that have to somehow make up that 75%. so it's clear whatever the policies are of the obama administration, they're not popular. bill: when you look at this phrase, many policies, that could be a number about of things in all honesty. >> sure. bill: what i think it tells you more than anything people are not happy. that goes to kind of a right track wrong track thing. >> why would they be happy? gasoline prices are twice what they were. national debt is skyrocketed to a point where they know they're hering. real earning power is down $3,000 per household that is down. not just stag
romney has an upwhile battle. according to the latest "wall street journal" and nbc poll, president obama has a seven point lead in new hampshire. north carolina is neck and neck with a two-point lead inside the margin of error. same goes for the state of nevada where the president has but a two-point lead. again, that is inside the margin of error. with us now is political reporter for real clear politics partisans can try to spin the polls but we use the same polls every time and the same methods. our polls say the same thing as everyone else. it is an uphill battle for mitt romney. no one is saying he can't win the thing. he has his work cut out. >> some of the polls do have higher samples of democrats. we hear the romney campaign --. >>shepard: our pollsters have said our poll is straight up and it is what it is. >>guest: you are right. that is why we are seeing both candidates, both the president and mitt romney, will be down a lot. we saw mitt romney in pennsylvania but we likely will not see him again until wednesday. the same thing with the president. he will campaign in nevada on
the system. >> according to the very latest polling, the president is actually leading mr. romney on virtually every single subject. the economy, health care social security immigration. the only subject mr. romney is polling better on than the president is the budget plan and his plans have been described as mathematically impossible. do you think mr. romney really thought he could fight this election by simply blaming the president but not having any content of his own? do you think that was his strategy? >> well i think that was his strategy. then he chose paul ryan and they claim to be fiscally conservative people but paul ryan's budget that mitt romney called a marvelous budget would not achieve balance for 30 years. so, they aren't even fiscally responsible. across the board, you know they've run a campaign that has blamed the president, blamed the president. they have no new ideas of their own. they simply want to go back to the bush agenda. more tax cuts for really wealthy people. putting an additional tax burden on working people. and looking down their
going on. the polls not looking good. mitt romney saying he's not paying attention to the polls. you're having a lot of his supporters saying, well, you don't pay any attention to the polls. i heard walter mondale say that the night before the election. a lot of desperation going on on the far right, but what's happening in the race? >> laser focus on the swing states. the candidates in virginia today, one of 30 states where early voting is already under way. it's a state president obama won in 2008 by more than six points. and where a polling average from real clear politics shows him right now at this moment up about 4.5 points. yesterday both candidates holding rallies in ohio, crisscrossing the state, sometimes almost running into each other they were so close campaigning. mitt romney tried to brush back suggestions his campaign is faltering there after that "new york times"/cbs/quinnipiac poll showing him ten points down in ohio. >> i'm very pleased with some polls, less so with other polls. but frankly at this early stage, polls go up and down. i don't expect to get 100% of the
in the polls after the paul ryan pick and the cotiasnt t romney campaign has stumbled repeatedly. yet mr. romney, who is losing by five or more points in iowa, colorado, wisconsin, michigan, ohio, florida and virginia, sees blue skies ahead. askehow he intended to turn his campaign ound, mr. romney esneturnaround.s," ,t and romney surrogates were out over the weekend blaming the liberal media for the campaign's troubles. the press didn't treat ronald reagan and george w. bush any less unfairly, and both men managed not onlyo win the presencyutge re-elected. mr. romney would do better to focus more on reducing his unforcedrrors and less on the fourth estate's political bias. ifhining about the liberal media was a winning strategy for republicans, newtingrich wou be t mi" well, and newt gingrich is a great example -- i don't mean to go back there -- a great example of the problem we're talking about here. because -- >> no. >> -- no, instead of stepping forward and separating himself from this candidate, he somehow, becausof his party -- at distraction.. >> it is. >> i'm talking about the p
poll working. the quinnipiac poll showing a ten-point gap. yesterday, showing romney down 8. ohio has been a problem for romney since the primaries when of all the midwestern states it with us the closest one where rick santorum nearly pulled off an upset. it's certainly the toughest in the badleground. the problem for romney is if he concedes ohio to obama, the president is simile one state away from a win. it's not a florida or virginia. he's a wisconsin away, a nevada away. that's the real problem here. the romney campaign needs ohio back. like this line yesterday, they tried to hammer obama on taxes. take a listen. >> he's got one new idea. i admit this. he has one thing he did not do in his first four years he said he's going to do in the next four years which is to raise taxes. is there anybody who thinks raising taxes will help grow the economy? >> no. >> ryan's expression back there when he looks over at portman, kind of intriguing. it would be curious what a thought bubble would be going on over there. but it's a little bit of a change for romney. he had often been accusing t
polling aces in iowa and found mostly outspoken obama supporters. >> do you think that the romney supporters are out voting early as well? or are they more likely to show up on election day? >> i don't see them. >> does this give you a false sense of security maybe? >> we're not taking anything for granted. i don't see them out here today. >> it's stunning for mitt romney to be so underprepared to fight in the ground me in iowa. hhee les the imarcandidate. romney only started making frequent appearances in the state a week before the iowa caucuses. by then, it was too late. and he lost a tight race. roey's campaign should have refocused their efforts, but stead, ty find thevese in hugdian, he fit baots re ct toy. president obama is moving in for the final knockout punch. the obama campaign unveiled a full two-minute television video ad today with president directly addressing viewers. the ad is airing in four swing states, including iowa. it'timeor aew enomiargument. patriotism. rooted in the belief that growing our economy against with a strong, thriving middle class. read my pla
to show some polls this morning that show just how horribly mitt romney's doing in ohio. you know what? i was saying last week there are 45 days. there aren't really 45 days left. they've got to turn this thing around or they lose. this is what jason riley wrote in "the wall street journal" yesterday. media blame game. this from a conservative publication, by the way, extreme right-wing trolls. "the wall street journal." just like "the wall street journal's" been warning mitt romney's campaign for a month now that he'd better do something or else he's going to lose. "since pulling even in the polls after the paul ryan pick and the gop convention last month, the romney campaign has stumbled repeatedly. yet mr. romney, who is losing by five or more points in iowa, colorado, wisconsin, michigan, ohio, florida and virginia, sees blue skies ahead. asked how he intended to turn his campaign around, mr. romney told "60 minutes," well, it doesn't need a turnaround. and romney surrogates were out over the weekend blaming the liberal media for the campaign's troubles. the press didn't treat ronald
in every campaign i've ever covered, the press will talk about process particularly polls. mitt romney, conservatives are waiting for him to be big in events, big in message, big in personality. it seems like right now the campaign is waiting for him to do that in the debates. >> mark, you know why they focus on process, because there's not substance to -- you know, it's funny, in 1988 facing a more hostile press george h.w. bush never once whined about process. you know why? because james baker told the press what they were going to be following. and he told the candidate what he was going to be doing. and every week the candidate did it. the message was unbelievable. but again, going on with charles krauthammer, for six months mitt has been matching obama small ball for small ball. a hit-and-run critique here. this is important. a hit-and-run critique here, a slogan of the week there. that's what we've been saying. sam stein, there is no over arching message, no reagan message, no thatcher message, no george h.w. bush message in 1988. it's small ball. you have a libyan embassy blow u
if romney offers an alternative to what obama has done to them? megyn: when you look at the polling they dug deep and asked what is it that's upsetting you. 45% approve of the job he's doing. only 45% approval rating among the middle class. the right track-wrong track indicator that these analysts tell us matter. 62% of the middle class families said the country is on the wrong track. that could be held in part again the president. >> also today came out not only in the beginning of this month of september and the end of august, consumer confidence is up. i'm so happy for you lars that you can find one poll that shows mitt romney ahead of my guy barack obama. but the thing about polls, as a democrat i don't get overly confident about the montana leading mitt romney in almost any other poll is a poll is a measure of a person's opinion at that moment in time. what i am want to go know is why that middle class advantage for former governor romney doesn't translate into a lead in the swing states. doesn't translate into a lead nationally, and doesn't translate when three out of four voters say t
the people of america. romney acknowledging that some of the polls show him behind president obama. but he pointed to the first presidential debate less than a week from now as a potential turning point in the race. >>> in new york it was a rough ride for nearly 200 people aboard a brazilian jetliner from rio. they were bracing for a crash landing at kennedy airport because the landing gear was stuck sideways. you can see it there. the pilot circled twice before touching down. the nose gear seemed to miraculously straighten itself out just before the plane hit the tarmac. thankfully no one was injured. but some anxious moments aboard that plane. >>> airlines across the country are raking in big profits from what used to be a free service. they're pocketing billions of dollars in baggage fees all coming at the expense of fed up passengers. abc's brandi hitt has the story. >> reporter: checking your bag at the airport has added up to big business for u.s. airlines. so big airlines raked in record profits from each and every luggage fee according to a new federal report. >> it's outrageous. >
and governor romney. a national poll out today finds that 93 percent of likely voters say they do plan to watch the debate. the same survey finds that president obama ahead nationally 49 percent to 45 percent which is just outside the margin of error. those polled rank the economy as the most important issue. on that, the two candidates are in a tie. governor romney leads when it comes to the handling of the budget deficit. however, the president is ahead on every other issue including health care and national security. we have team fox coverage. carl cameron has the latest from the romney campaign. first, we go to ed henry in las vegas. what do we know about the president's debate prep? >>reporter: they have tried to keep that quiet. we have spotted senator john kerry who is playing mitt romney in the mock debate sessions for the president in the las vegas area. he has been spotted in the lobby of the hotel, with reading glasses and a pile of papers, going through this like it is a final exam and researching every last bit. the president, when he delivered pizza to campaign volunteers to show
director. emily, you look at the polls and it appears that governor romney is way down when it comes to women especially single women. you not about to be swayed toward the romney catch, but if you were, what do you want to hear the governor talk about? >>guest: well, the way governor romney will portray himself is what he is messaging. president obama is coming through with an honest conversation for the american people, another opportunity for a conversation. the president did it at convention and will do it tomorrow night. from governor romney, the only final we saw him be honest is as you mentioned, 37 percent, 47 percent, he doesn't believe he needs to represent 47 percent of the american people. if i were the working mother, and i was part of the 47 percent, if i was a student as a single mother, as a single women, or deployed veteran, that is part of the 47 percent, i would not believe he is there to represent me. >>trace: the president says, sherry, on the specific faces, he is an average debater, and we know he is a good debater. the question is, does he have enough ammuniti

mitt romney is leading in all the polls and it's a liberal conspiracy to suppress the republican -- boy, that's something. could it be they just don't accept the legs ma si of a democrat in the white house. that's my theory. they don't think democrats belong in the white house. they'd given the congress awou for 100 years if they could have the white house. this is "hardball," the place for politics. gave it greater horsepower and best in class 38 mpg highway... advanced headlights... and zero gravity seats? yeah, that would be cool. ♪ introducing the completely reimagined nissan altima. it's our most innovative altima ever. nissan. innovation that excites. ♪ nissan. innovation that excites. i'm bara ck o bama and i approven. innovation that excites. romney: "it's time to stand up to the cheaters" vo: tough on china? not mitt romney. when a flood of chinese tires threatened a thousand american jobs... it was president obama who stood up to china and protected american workers. mitt romney attacked obama's decision... said standing up to china was "bad for the nation and our workers.
: tonight, mitt romney needs swing state seniors-- but a new poll shows what they're doing about his medicare plan is driving many away. there is a lot of rhetoric about medicare. what do you intend to go? a police crime lab scientist is arrested for faking test results. did innocent people go to jail? elaine quijano is on the story. 3 f1y of hope for the blind. dr. jon lapook on a new device that brought dean lloyd back from total blindness. and "on the road", steve hartman visits a restaurant whose special city a second helping of compassion. >> i've been very lucky and i want people to have what i have. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" yzith scott pelley. >> pelley: good evening, mitt romney has 39 days to turn his 45esidential campaign into a winner but the support of a key voting group is in jeopardy. seniors tend to vote republicans but many are concerned about what a president romney might do with medicare. look at this poll of key swing states by the "washington post." in florida where nearly one out of three voters is over 65, romney trails presiden
, the moment has become a defining element of romney's candidacy. new poll by pew shows how deep these comments penetrated. 67% say they knew romney made those comments. that's of the whole country. of those people, 55% said they had a negative reaction toward hearing them. the only thing in politic that is is worse than voters deciding they don't like you is when voters decide you don't like them. howard, what a great turn of phrase by alex castellanos when voters sense you don't like them. >> well, here in colorado, chris, the obama campaign is certainly not letting people forget those comments from that private fund-raiser back in may. talking to people here, they say they're seeing that ad, seeing the obama ad, that highlights romney's comments over and over and over again in heavy rotation on television here in colorado, perhaps the ultimate swing state. so the obama campaign knows they've got a loaded weapon there and they're firing it time after time after time to much good effect from their point of view. >> chuck, i can't remember anything that's really resounded so well with one side
in the polls. he can keep trying to shift the debate toward those romney weaknesses. in particular, the sense he's out of touch with the middle class. you'll hear the number 47 as often as obama can get it into the debate. >> you think he can come off as aloof. when you look at the polls, the one thing he's consistently exceeded mitt romney at is likability. >> right. yet he does have -- it's partly it's proffesorial. when he looks like john kennedy he's on an upslope. he's not so good when he thinks he is way ahead and konts respect an opponent. i have a hunch he is hearing that from his folks in that room in nevada saying, you can't make a mistake like that. >> part of it is who you compare him to. he's aloof compared to bill clinton. bill clinton has a touch. >> everyone is aloof compared to bill clinton. >> exactly. >> let's talk about mitt romney. strengths, weakness. >> mitt romney's strength is that he is, comes across as competent, as a capable human being. as somebody who projects an air of authority, especially when he talks about the economy. that is the private sector track record
/"new york times" poll has the president ahead by nine points, 53% to 44%. in ohio he leads governor romney by ten points, 53% to 43%. john dickerson is our cbs news political director. john, some republicans are complaining these polls aren't painting an accurate picture. do they have a case? >> reporter: well, they have a case when they remind us that polls are a snapshot in time and that things can change. really what we should look at in polls is the trends and how things are moving over time, the currents. and right now those favor barack obama. the polls are really more like a painting than they are a digital photograph. one of the other complaints is that pollsters are talking to too many democrats. in 2004 democrats said pollsters were talking to too many republicans. it's a standard complaint for the party that the currents are moving against. >> pelley: john, why is there such a difference between the national poll which is essentially a tie and the poll in the battleground states? >> well, they're really polls of two different countries. the battleground states peoples v seen mil
. thank you. >> governor romney fallen behind in the national polls. new polls out this morning iowa and ohio behind in both. we were laughing about the expectations setting on both sides but, governor romney has to shake things up, wednesday night, doesn't he. >> he is going to. every time mitt romney has been confronted in this campaign with one of these moments he has come through in a debate and performed extraordinarily well, laying out his vision very clearly and also contrasting himself and his vision with whoever his opponent was at that time. i have absolute confidence, george, all you will be shaking your head it is a brand new race. jenna: new jersey governor chris christie, making a bold prediction, how about that? the bold prediction related to the first presidential debate saying governor mitt romney's performance against the president could very well change the entire race. but how important are presidential debates and how much do they really shape the outcome in november? we heard a lot. joining me someone who has done research on polling impact of past debates. larr
. this doesn't get to the heart of what mitt romney said. now the polls show that what mitt romney said has been disapproved, if you just play his remarks for voters, disapproved two to one by, you know, by voters. that is what we've been talking about. is what he said. and what he said was half the country wasn't worthy of his time or attention in this presidential election. gregg: sean, let me go to you. earlier this month a cnn poll found governor romney leads president obama among likely independent voters by a substantial 14 points. 54%, look at this, to 40%. he also leads among independents in critical swing states like ohio and florida, and yet, "u.s. news & world report" points out there has been almost no mention of it in the media. i wonder why? >> well, i think what you are starting to see is that independents are largely part of the 60% of americans that think this country is off on the wrong track and right now that they are giving a stark contrast to what this election presents in terms of more government centered country or a free enterprise system that governor romney offers
is holed up in vegas for two days preparing. mitt romney will be in colorado tonight. the latest poll shows president obama and mitt romney locked in a tight race nationally. but where it counts, those battle ground states, the president still leads. and here's another interesting poll. most people think the president will win the first debate which may be why he's trying to lower expectations. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the the zingers. governor romney is good. i'm just okay. >> and paul ryan played his own version. >> president obama is a gifted speaker. he's been on the national stage for many years. he's done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> but if all candidates are trying to lower expectations, maybe chris christie missed that memo. >> governor romney's going to lay out his vision for a better and greater america for greater opportunity for all of our citizens. and i think that's when you're going to see this race really start to tighten and move in governor romney's direction. come th
polling deficit. there are sign mrs. romney may be coming to his senses after joking at the clinton global initiative that he could do with a little help from a former president. >> if there's one thing we've learned in this election season, by the way, it is that a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. all i got to do now is wait a couple days for that bounce to happen. >> right, we'll keep our eye on that. the other bump that romney loves to talk about these days is his attack on the president for saying the middle east would face bumps in the road and romney's suggestion that the president was somehow referring to the deaths of the american ambassador to libya and three other diplomats. a theme that romney reiterated today though in a more muted form. >> syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. our ambassador to libya was assassinated in a terrorist attack. iran is moving toward nuclear weapons capability. we somehow feel that we're at the mercy of events rather than shaping events. >>
votes new poll show the president has the lead in ohio, florida, pennsylvania, but mitt romney is not backing down. >> we have a question about what course america's going to take. i represent one that will create more jobs and more take-home pay. the president represents more of the same. >> it's a plan, what's the plan if he can't capture those states? >>> and cyndi lauper a revealing new memoir. she says her iconic hit "girls just want to have fun" almost didn't get made nap would be a tragedy. imagine life today? >>> it is wednesday, september 26th. "starting point" begins right now. >>> we are going to begin with breaking news from greece. new images from athens where about 50,000 pro festers filled the streets in the largest anti-austerity demonstration in months. throng molotov cocktails. >> protesters angry over the latest les of austerity. organized by the country's two biggest unions who say years of saifice imposed by dcbudget cut it's have nod let to improvements in the economy. the biggest demonstration we've seen. >> saw them in spain. still a problem in a lot of
" poll shows for the first time, mitt romney is slightly better regarded on the question of who will do better leading the economy over the next four years than the president? that's through no good offices of mitt romney on his own. that's in spite of what mitt romney has done. >> howard, we have heard so much about the disgruntled folks within the romney/ryan camp. the way it's unfolding in the polls is not good. there's a report that says that romney is beginning to lose donors who were shifting their money to house and senate races. what's going on here? is this starting to take it its toll on the campaign? >> yes. in many ways what mitt romney's challenge is on wednesday night is to stop the bleeding within his own party and within his own camp. absolutely. behind the scenes, republicans are very worried. some are saying so publically. if mitt romney doesn't reassure them within the first half hour of the debate, they are goners. now you're seeing already, a lot of the independent super pacs who are blessed with their own money are going elsewhere. they are desperately trying to ke
